Flipping Amazing Charity Pancake Day Challenge

At Bigfoot Digital, we have two loves. The first is SEO (of course), and the second? Food, and lots of it. Last week we celebrated Pancake Day in true Bigfoot style – with a flipping good competition. Who could decorate the perfect pancake? Who could flip a pancake the most times in under a minute? Despite the mounting pressure and ticking clock, it’s safe to say we had great fun.

There were some interesting concoctions…

And, the failed attempts came in their shroves… (Expect more crêpe puns. Sorry, they may fall flat…)

As a creative agency, we love raising money for charity and this Pancake Day was no exception. The winners of each competition nominated a charity of their choice. Bigfoot Digital generously donated £50 to each charity. The fun (and at times competitive) challenge took place in the Bigfoot office on Tuesday 13th February. The Bigfoot colleague who managed the most pancake-keepy-uppys was Account Manager, Steph Briody. Our photographer for the day and Digital Executive, Mat, presented the perfect pancake.

Reach Charity:

Charity choice number one is www.reach.org. This charity supports those living with upper limb differences live a life without limits. They never focus on it as a disability. Through the care and attention given to families, children learn to celebrate their differences. Overall, a really positive community to be involved in.

“I chose Reach because just over a year ago my best friend, Emma, found out during her 20 week scan that her unborn child had a condition called Radial Club Hand whereby his arm on one side hadn’t and wouldn’t develop correctly,” Steph explains.

“Emma and her husband really have been engrained with this charity and connected with many families who all share the same experiences. Emma is now the Yorkshire Branch Coordinator. This is so close to my heart because it affects my best friend and her amazing, clever and beautiful little boy who certainly isn’t and won’t be living a life without limits.”

Stonewall Charity:

The second charity, chosen by Digital Executive, Mat, is www.stonewall.org.uk. Stonewall is a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights charity in the United Kingdom. The charity stands for acceptance without exception. They are here to let people know, they are not alone.

We loved this opportunity to have some office fun and games, and raise money for these deserving charities. Are you interested in working for a digital agency that has ‘this’ much fun? Of course you are. See our current vacancies and send your CV and covering letter to enquiries@bigfootdigital.co.uk
